# 3165 ersma: manchmal fragt man sich ja, wie das eine oder andere bier in den keller gelangt ist. bei diesem habe ich keine ahnung. konnte mich auch nicht erinnern, es vorher je gesehen zu haben. jedenfalls handelt es sich lt. rücketikett um das flaggschiff der brauerei. dunkel bernsteinfarben, könnte auch hell kupfer sein. leicht trübe. mittelviel schaum, der eher flüchtig ist - also ein qualitätsmerkmal für ale. der geruch ist süßlich bis süß. melasse, karamell und bonsche. der antrunk ist die erste sekunde süß, dann kommen hopfenherbe noten hinzu. dahinter bleibt aber eine süße, die sehr melassig wirkt. etwas beerenaroma. der abgang behält das süße fundament, auch wenn es deutlich herber und bitterer wird. sehr unausgewogen. die flasche ist ok. fazit: wenn man sich tests zu diesem bier anguckt, wundert man sich. hab ich hier das gleiche im glas? die melassige süße empfinde ich als anstrengend und unangenehm. vielleicht wäre ein nachtest angebracht. dazu müsst ich aber ersma wissen, wo es das bier gibt. so jedenfalls alles andere als ein flaggschiff. eher was mit deutlicher schlagseite. 11,7,6,6,10,6 - 6,85 - 12/11/12

jsporrer (830) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Pours a hazy medium amber with a thin white ring. Light carbonation and some lacing. Aroma of bready grains and light malts. Light to medium body. Taste is malt based with a lightly bitter hop bite. Fairly smooth finish and a lingering aftertaste. Fairly enjoyable but not great.

BadAprilia1000 (427) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Pours a reddish color with a great thick white head. Aroma is malt, hops, bread, dried fruit (mild), and caramel. Taste is bitter hops with a medium malt body with no fruitiness and very dry in a great way. Great amber, one of the few of the style that isn’t overly sweet.

jrodooo5 (1566) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - DEC 2, 2016
An amber that pops w/ flavor! Pours copper w/ a white head & spotty lacing. The aroma has lovely caramel & malt notes & they carry through in the flavor. It finishes w/ just a tad bit of bitterness to add to the complexity. This is one good amber!

Hopper8 (69) - Holland, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2016 It’s gotta a fair bit of pale malt to the flavor. There is a nice balance between the hops and the malts. Overall this beer has some sweetness and is a very drinkable beer.
